Deep Creek State Park, Maryland
United States
Virginia-Maryland Race Series
71F / 22C
Total Time = 1h 32m 49s
Overall Rank = 35/121
Age Group = M45-49
Age Group Rank = 11/24
Pre-race routine:

Race #1 in doing the Savageman 120.0

  • 14m 20s
  • 800 yards
  • 01m 47s / 100 yards

Started off a little brisk, but quickly just settled into taking it easy. This was going to be a LONG weekend, no sense in blowing it up on the first leg of the first race.
Transition 1
  • 00m

I don't have a T1 time
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, it was a pretty smooth, laid back transition.
  • 00m
  • 15.5 miles
  • 0.00 mile/hr

I rode it well, deliberately taking it easier than I normally would have... Probably rode it about a full HR zone lower than I would normally race.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, I think I executed this well.
Transition 2
  • 01m 35s

Super good transition; hit all the marks (still had plenty of energy).
What would you do differently?:

Nothing; nailed it.
  • 25m 38s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 16s  min/mile

Walked the one decent hill on the course to save the legs for later, ran the rest at a decent aerobic pace, crossed the finish and headed right to T3.

What would you do differently?:

Nothing. This was a solid start to the weekend.
Post race
Warm down:

Ran to T2 to start the Savageman 30.0

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Common sense, lol!

This program is a beginner plan to bridge you from an a Half Ironman to Ironman using a HRM with the confidence that you can complete the race without difficulty.

A quick and easy 20 minute at home strength training workout. This is a freeweight workout, so only a few dumbbells are needed.

Executing this full Ironman plan for 17 weeks would give people with one Ironman under their belts very good preparation for a 2nd and 3rd. Preferably, you should have a 6:30 or faster HIM time.

This Intermediate 20 week plan is a quick ramp up in overall volume, but with 20 weeks to train only, it is a gradual and safe approach because of the alternating weeks of the long run/bike.
